When you want to print and frame pictures you have to think about aspect ratio and find a frame to fit the ratio that you have. My camera takes pictures at 6000 pixels by 4000 pixels and so the aspect ratio is 6 x 4. Many modern frames are 6 inches by 4 inches and so will match 6 x 4 prints. The print service I use also does double that size at 12 by 8 inches but there are lots of frames around 10 x 8 too. Some print services do 10 x 8 prints but otherwise, you have to cut 2 inches from your print. If you do have a print service that does 10 x 8 and your camera does images 6 x 4 like mine, then the image has to be cropped before printing.
I uploaded some of my images to Saatchi Art last week so they could be put on sale, unfortunately they didn’t accept my ID so they won’t be on sale just yet. Good prints fetch quite high prices, especially if they are limited editions. You need a quality image that is not just a snap that anyone could take. (more…)
